"During the past five years, the SEC OIG (Office of Inspector General) substantiated that 33 SEC employees and or contractors violated Commission rules and policies, as well as the government-wide Standards of Ethical Conduct, by viewing pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive images using government computer resources and official time," said a summary of the investigation by the inspector general's office.

The inspector general's report includes specific examples of misuse by employees.

A regional office staff accountant tried to access pornographic Web sites nearly 1,800 times, using her SEC laptop during a two-week period. She also had about 600 pornographic images saved on the hard drive of her laptop. More...

I take it all these people were fired :rolleyes:

Only govt workers get a 6 figure salary to do nothing
Makes you winder what Nero was "fiddling" with as Rome burned.

You don't find it just a little coincidental that they were in the process of investigating the likes of Goldman Sachs just before this came out?
